It is common for an issue with a front tooth to feel as though the discomfort is in or around the nose. This is because the roots of the front teeth are under and just behind the nose. thus, when there is a problem with related discomfort with these teeth, it often feels just as you have described. It's likely that you have either inflammation of the nerve of the tooth or possibly infection at the periapical (tip of the root) area of your broken tooth, although it's not possible to determine with certainty without a clinical exam and xrays. It would be wise to have a dentist have a look. If you have an infection, it should be treated as soon as you can. The dentist may determine that antibiotics are necessary.
